Ralph gave this amazing orchid to Emily
and I last night for Valentines day.
I woke up this morning to Emily telling me she watered it. I was so upset because it was soaked through and had heard that that is death for orchids. I called a florist and she told me not to worry. That they actually like water. I had a talk with Em about orchids and how they are fragile like babies and that next time we will water her(our orchid together).
There are two flowering shoots on our plant. We named them Ruby and Louise.

We went to Tader Joe's today to get a few groceries. Every time we visit this store I am amazed at how much more I like it than say Shaws or Stop and shop. The cashiers actually speak to you in a friendly manner. Its so great. I almost never go to the other grocery stores any more.
